  4. This is an awesome edit; you have inspired me to think differently about using dark textures...I think sometimes I I am going for what I think others will like or a certain look instead of going with my gut....

  5. Wow, that was a great shot of the wingspan and your edit is beautifully done!
    You've given a lot of beauty to this bird that most find unattractive.
    Love the poetry as well!
